January 12, 2014 – Sam’s birthday party

Sam turned five years old yesterday and today is his party. We pick up Sarah and arrive a few minutes early. The main event, other than Sam, will be Auntie Leigh’s fabulous cake. This year it is the evil emperor from Star Wars sitting down in a chair onto a whoopie cushion. I ask Sam to pose by his cake but he is too shy. However, Jonathan is not.

There is the usual excitement of opening presents.

Finally it’s time for the cake to do its thing and for everyone to have a slice of Emperor Palpatine’s throne.
